TL;DR, excuse me.

Before we can agree to merge to a single-repo, there's one further question

> Should the layout in the merged repository be:

> <root>/clang/
> <root>/compiler-rt

FYI, the layout can be synthesized with tree objects in each *.git with
git-plumbing commands.

> llvm/tools/clang
> llvm/projects/compiler-rt

I suppose the layout is just standing on "the historical reason".
At least, clang is position-independent. It'd work if clang is not on
$(BUILD_ROOT)/tools/clang, but on $(BUILD_ROOT)/projects/clang.

Since the llvm-project unified tree repo has been unofficial, I didn't
propose any llvm-project-specific things.
I have just been tweaking that makes subprojects not assumed

I think we could take any option, svn, set of single repos, or unified tree.
ATM, I don't agree just to migrate to the single git repo. :)
